Families and Friends of Room 105:
I want to welcome you to your student's new classroom website! Second grade is an exciting year (and full of lots of firsts). In this classroom, students will be apart of a joyful community of learners celebrating this year's theme of "I am Third".
I will be using my website for monthly updates. Things you will find are important events coming up and a general monthly overview. For weekly/daily updates, I will be using Class Dojo. Students will be coming home with a sheet telling you how to sign up for notifications. This app allows me to send out reminders, announcements, and also lets you see how your children earn behavior points throughout the day. I will go into more detail about Class Dojo at Back to School night. Until then, play around with it and get to know the functions you have as a parent.
Coming home will also be a Parent Survey. This survey gives you a chance to tell me the best way to contact you, as well as some information about your child. My favorite part of this survey is reading what YOU think I need to know about your child! I always get to know your children from your perspective and I love that.
Other things that will be coming home are the Handbook, picture forms, office forms, etc. What I ask is that you read through the handbook before signing the sign off sheet. There are a few tweaks, so it is not the same as last year.
I cannot wait to embark on this second grade journey with you kiddos :) I will see you all tomorrow bright and early!
